Is Alex Anthopoulos going to the Dodgers?

Former Blue Jays’ GM general manager rumoured to be heading west to join L.A. front office

Former Blue Jays’ general manager Alex Anthopoulos will reportedly join the Los Angeles Dodgers, according to Vince Cauchon, a sports reporter for Quebec City’s CHOI 98.1 who tweeted the news Sunday.

When contacted by the Toronto Star on Tuesday, Anthopoulos declined to comment.

The Dodgers have been a long-rumoured landing spot for the 38-year-old baseball executive, who opted to walk away from the Jays’ front office in October after the franchise’s most successful season in 22 years rather than work under new team president Mark Shapiro.

The Dodgers’ general manager is Farhan Zaidi, the former assistant GM of the Oakland A’s with whom Anthopoulos has enjoyed a good working relationship for many years. Zaidi, like Anthopoulos, is Canadian. The Dodgers also recently poached international scouting executive Ismael Cruz from Toronto, so Anthopoulos would have other familiar faces in the organization.

Anthopoulos, who was named 2015’s MLB executive of the year by the Sporting News, told The Canadian Press last month that he expected to take a job in baseball at some point in January.
